Offers at least some drop protection. The table is held in place by very thick silicone like bands which cover the edges. The plastic back extends a little past the edge of the tablet, to provide some edge drop protection.
Front cover protects screen from damage when closed.
All ports/buttons are accessible. Able to fully insert even thick headphone jacks.
Easy to remove from case, can do so in a few seconds.
Looks nice, elegant and simple.
Strong magnet closure, I prefer this to an elastic band as I tend to be lazy and not put the band on.
No cover for the glass screen.
Magnet closure does not turn device on/off.
Cannot stand it up vertically in this case. Horizontal option limited to about 70 degree angle and about 30 degree angle.
Cost. This is expensive for this type of cover. My husband has a cover on his which cost one third of the current price for this Belkin which is pretty much the same design other than the fact that the cheaper case does not cover as much of the corners of the device. The Belkin looks a little higher class, but not enough to justify the price difference.
The down volume button is almost up against the edge of the lip which holds the tablet in place. You may like this (it makes it easy to run your finger along it and tell where the down button is), but it also means you have your finger right up against that lip when turning the volume down.
